It’s ALL about the fishing! A South Florida resident his entire life, Rick Murphy spent his childhood fishing and hunting. He became a licensed captain and earned his reputation as a fishing expert in the waters of Biscayne Bay, Everglades National Park and the Florida Keys.
He is one of only two fishing guides to ever win the four major Tarpon fly fishing championships. He has crossed saltwater boundaries to win tournaments and Angler of the Year honors in the ESPN and Florida Pro Redfish Tournaments, and reeled in plenty of wins in the South Florida Sailfish Circuit as well. Sportsman’s Adventures with Captain Rick Murphy first aired in 1994. With his knowledge and keen sense of humor, you can expect a high-energy, sports fishing experience that includes personal fishing tips and the latest trends.
“I wear many hats in the marine industry: TV host, spokesperson, professional angler and charter captain. Out of all my roles, guiding remains my favorite. It enables me to deliver the conservation message of angler’s rights and responsibilities first-hand. I see myself as an ambassador to the angling community and genuinely enjoy sharing my passion and experience about fishing!”
